I hope everyone has a really fun, safe New Year’s Eve!
This year I have some fun plans – I’m having Nicey and her hubby over for dinner. We’re going to have Chinese food, because somehow, Chinese food and New Year’s Eve just goes together, doesn’t it? I never eat Chinese food, because it’s so heavy, but every once in a while it’s nice to have. We won’t be drinking too much, because Nicey’s husband doesn’t really drink. I did buy some prosecco, though, because we have to have some bubbles when midnight hits. Plus, I still have the pom martini mix, in case Nicey would like to have one with me. I got 500 Days of Summer from Netflix for us to watch, and of course we can play Wii bowling! It’ll be a really nice, lowkey evening, which is perfect. I think I’m past the age where I like huge, loud parties.
I’m not exactly sure how to count the points for the Chinese food we’re planning on ordering. WW has things like lo mein, but they don’t have the honey walnut chicken. My solution is that I’m going to eat light during the day, make sure to get a good workout in, and then watch my portion sizes when it comes to the actually food. I think it will be fine, and I have the rest of the week to eat well, workout hard, and stay on plan.
I mentioned the other day that I spent a few hours making a Smilebox “Holiday Newsletter” that was a 2009 retrospective with photos and a bit of text to share with family and friends. Everyone who viewed them loved them, and I thought I’d share them with you guys, too. There are 2 because I couldn’t fit all of 2009 into 18 photos and 6 slides – I needed twice that much, at least. These take a while to load, but I think you’ll find it worth your wait. Enjoy!!
